Hay Removal From State Highway Right Of Way Deadline

 

 

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation requests the cooperation of all farmers and ranchers in removing processed hay from the highway right of way.

 

State regulations require that hay be removed from the right of way within 30 days of being processed, but no later than Oct. 1.

 

Removing hay bales from the highway right of way is an important safety consideration for motorists. The bales or stacks can be a safety hazard for vehicles forced to leave the road and, in some cases, can restrict a driver’s sight distance. Hay left in the road ditches late in the year can also cause snowdrifts across the highway.

 

For more information, contact Jason Humphrey at 605-773-3571.
